Oxford OKs Sunday alcohol in restaurants

If state regulators agree, Oxford restaurants will soon be able to offer liquor, wine and beer by the glass every Sunday between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Aldermen voted 6-1 on Tuesday to change the city ordinance that for two years has experimented with legal on-premises alcohol service on nine or 10 Sundays a year, including football weekends at the University of Mississippi. They also voted last year to allow Sunday sales of beer and light wine for off-premises consumption.
